StrikePoint Commences Discovery-Focused Exploration Program at the High-Grade Porter Silver and Willoughby Gold Properties

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 5, 2022) – Strikepoint Gold Inc. (TSXV: SKP) (OTCQB: STKXF) (“StrikePoint” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that exploration work has commenced at its 100%-owned Properties located near Stewart, BC in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle. 3,000 metres of drilling is planned at the Willoughby gold-silver and Porter Silver Properties, in addition to surface sampling and mapping programs with an emphasis on exploration at the Porter Silver Property.

Shawn Khunkhun, President and CEO of Strikepoint states,With a healthy treasury over $5 million, we are excited to commence our drilling programs at the Porter and Willoughby Properties. At Porter, our work will continue to test the limits and source of the historic silver mines; at Willoughby, we will also seek new high-grade gold-silver discoveries in previously unexplored areas.”

Porter Silver Property

The Porter Property hosts the three highest-grade pure silver historic producers in the Stewart area: the Prosperity, Porter Idaho and Silverado mines. Objectives for the 2022 season include:

  • Drill extensions to high-grade silver mineralization outlined in historic resource estimates
  • Explore for the roots of the silver veins and gold-silver-rich intrusive-related mineralization
  • Assess the underground access and workings for future rehabilitation

1,600 metres of drilling is planned at Porter, initially targeting the past-producing Prosperity, Blind and D veins in 8-10 holes. Additionally, mapping and sampling will be completed prioritizing exploring the northwest and eastern areas of the Property. Work at the western side will investigate strong alteration and gossan with historic gold-rich prospects along northwest trending structures. On the eastern side of the Property, significant glacial retreat of the Marmot glacier and alpine icefields have revealed new exposures that have never seen modern exploration.

The Porter Project contains two shears-hosted silver-rich vein systems: the Silverado and Prosperity-Porter Idaho. The showings are 2.35 km apart, located on opposite sides of Mt. Rainey, overlooking the town of Stewart. The Project is located strategically at the head of the Portland Canal, a deep-water port with year-round, ice-free access. Significant underground workings on multiple levels were used by the historic operators. During the 2022 season, StrikePoint will investigate the feasibility of completing rehabilitation of the workings, most recently used in the 1980s for exploration work, to complete a future underground drilling program.

The initial discovery of silver mineralization on Mt. Rainey occurred in the early 1900s. Prosperity-Porter Idaho veins were the focus of the initial work where mineralization is hosted in six parallel dipping shear zones which have been traced in underground workings for up to 425 metres along strike and 360 metres downdip with widths between 2 and 13 metres. The zones remain open at depth. The deposit was mined between 1929 and 1931 and produced 27,123 tonnes with recovered grades of 2,542 g/t silver (73.8 oz/ton) and 1 g/t gold (yielding approximately 2.2 million ounces of silver). Direct shipping ore was transported to the port at Stewart via aerial tramway.

Willoughby Gold-Silver Property

Strikepoint’s 2022 drilling season will commence at the Willoughby gold-silver Property with 1,400 metres in 6-8 holes. Objectives for the Willoughby exploration program include:

  • Drill northern and southern extensions to the 600 metre long trend of mineralized zones along the Willoughby nunatak
  • Exploratory drilling to discover new mineralization to the west of the Willoughby nunatak trend

Willoughby occurs along the eastern margin of the Cambria Icefield, approximately seven kilometres east of the advanced-stage Red Mountain Deposit owned by Ascot Resources. Upper Triassic Stuhini rocks and Lower Jurassic Hazelton volcano-sedimentary rocks underlay the property, subsequently intruded by an early Jurassic-aged hornblende-feldspar porphyry, potentially comagmatic with the Goldslide Intrusive suite at the nearby Red Mountain deposit. Intrusive-related mineralized zones consist of primary pyrite with lesser pyrrhotite, sphalerite, galena, chalcopyrite and native gold. Eight gold and silver mineralized zones have been identified to date over a one-kilometre strike-length mineralized trend.

Dolly Varden Silver Mobilizes Three Drill Rigs to Commence an Initial 30,000 Meters of Resource Expansion, Upgrade and Exploration Drilling

VANCOUVER, BC, May 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Dolly Varden Silver Corporation (TSXV: DV) (OTC: DOLLF) (the “Company” or “Dolly Varden“) is pleased to announce the initiation of field activities on its Kitsault Valley Project, located near tidewater in northwest British Columbia. Objectives of the 2022 Program include: upgrade current Inferred Mineral Resources to Measured and Indicated classification, expand known deposits and to discover new silver and gold mineralization along the Kitsault Valley trend of multiple deposits and historic mines.

Shawn Khunkhun, President and CEO comments, “With a robust $25 million treasury, a discovery-focused technical team and a target-rich environment, 2022 is setting up to be an historic year for Dolly Varden Silver. With strategic and technical input from our supportive corporate shareholder: Hecla Mining, it is our goal to make new silver and gold discoveries as well as to dramatically grow and upgrade resource at our current deposits, setting the Company up to be the next development Project in the Golden Triangle.”

Three diamond drill rigs are being mobilized by barge to the village of Alice Arm to complete an initial 99 drill holes Program totaling 30,000 meters along the Kitsault Valley Trend. Camp expansion and infrastructure upgrades are underway to accommodate our expanded exploration team, with a significant contingent of team members of the Nisga’a Nation.

Dolly Varden’s Kitsault Valley Project currently hosts Indicated Resources of 34.7 million ounces of silver and 166 thousand ounces of gold with additional Inferred Resources of 29.3 million ounces of silver and 817 thousand ounces of gold within multiple outcropping deposits in the 163 square kilometer Property. Resource upgrade and expansion drilling will begin at the Torbrit silver deposit, initially targeting step-outs at the Wolf Mine and between the Torbrit and North Star silver Deposits.

In late spring, drilling will commence at the Homestake Main and Homestake Silver deposits with the purpose of expanding mineralization along strike and down-dip as well upgrading current Inferred Resources.

Through integration of excellent detailed geological mapping integrated with innovative geochemical, geophysical and remote sensing methods, Dolly Varden’s strong technical team has identified new greenfield target areas along the Kitsault Valley trend. Additional surface mapping and sampling coupled with IP geophysical surveys will help refine drill targets to be tested during the 2022 Program. Twenty exploration targets have been initially identified, eight of which have been classified as Priority 1.

StrikePoint Gold’s Willoughby Surface Sampling Identifies Strike Extensions at NN and Willow Zones with High Grade Samples Including 49 g/t Gold and 777 g/t Silver and 8.59 g/t AuEq over 3 Metres at Edge Zone

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – April 12, 2022) – StrikePoint Gold Inc. (TSXV: SKP) (OTCQB: STKXF) (“StrikePoint” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from surface channel sampling as well as reconnaissance grab samples collected during the 2021 exploration program at the 100%-owned Willoughby gold-silver property, located east of the community of Stewart in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle. The purpose of the channel sampling is to provide quality surface assay data over the surface expression of mineralized zones that could potentially be used for a NI43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate for the property and to refine diamond drill targeting for 2022 field season.

Highlights of the remainder of 2021 surface sampling at Willoughby Include:

  • 4.74 g/t AuEq over 7.0 metres, including 8.60 g/t AuEq over 3.0 metres in channel at Edge Zone
  • 11 grabs from NN Zone average 4.28 g/t Au, 159.1 g/t Ag including 17.45 g/t Au, 576 g/t Ag
  • 6 grabs from Willow Zone average 9.91 g/t Au, 151.4 g/t Ag including 49.00 g/t Au and 777 g/t Ag

StrikePoint’s CEO, Shawn Khunkhun, states, “In addition to providing increased definition at the known gold-silver Zones at Willoughby, surface sampling during 2021 at the NN area along strike from the North Zone underground workings has extended total strike of the series of mineralized Zones an additional 113 metres to the north on the Willoughby nunataq. As well, the high-grade gold and silver values and multiple high-grade structures 100 meters south of our Willow Zone drilling are priority drilling targets for our 2022 drilling season. Of particular interest are the high silver assays from these areas.”

2021 Willoughby Channel Sampling

These results include seven continuous series of channel samples from steep terrain at the Edge Zone, collected by experienced climbing geologists and technicians using a hydraulic chisel, from well-exposed bedrock hosting disseminated to massive mineralization. The samples cover approximately 40 metres of strike and 20 metres of vertical relief on steep exposure. This sampling suggests that the Edge Zone true thickness ranges from 3 to 8 metres. Coupled with drilling, this sampling suggests dimension of 16 by 48 metres starting at surface.

The Edge Zone samples, along with channel sampling results from the Icefall zones on the property (News release December 15, 2021, 3.38 g/t AuEq over 15.0 metres including 12.53 g/t AuEq over 2.0 metres in channel W21-CH-004), provide representative assay data from surface expressions projected up-dip and along strike to the north of previous and 2021 drilling (News Release March 2, 2022, 2.76 g/t AuEq over 6.50 metres and 10.16 g/t AuEq over 1.5 metres in hole W21-117).

The Edge zone is one of the least tested of the seven significant mineralized areas on the Willoughby nunataq. The channel sampling at the Edge Zones confirmed continuous gold and silver mineralization along all seven channel lines in 74 samples with values of up to 18.50 g/t gold and 31.1 g/t silver. Five channel sampling lines intersected the mineralized horizon perpendicular to the strike of the Edge Zone (W21-CH-008, W21-CH-009, W21-CH-011 to W21-CH-013), and two are along strike (W21-CH-010, W21-CH-014).

The gold-silver mineralization consists of replacement-style sulphides within permeable lapilli tuff strata of the Early Jurassic lower Hazelton group. Mineralization is concordant with bedding and ranges from semi-massive to massive pyrite with accessory sphalerite-chalcopyrite. Both W21-CH-008 and W21-CH-013 intersected the mineralized horizon perpendicularly. W21-CH-008 returned 4.74 g/t AuEq over 7.0 metres, including 8.60 g/t AuEq over 3.0 metres. W21-CH-013 is the northernmost channel sampling line, stepped out 48 metres from the previously released 2021 drilling at the Edge zone and returned 3.26 g/t AuEq over 9.0 metres. Both W21-CH-010 and W21-CH-014 are parallel to the mineralization testing continuity along strike. W21-CH-010 returned 3.01 g/t AuEq over 11.0 metres, and W21-CH-014 returned 3.48 g/t AuEq over 18.0 metres, extending the outlined Edge zone mineralization in the 2021 drilling twenty-seven metres further to the north.

2021 Willoughby Grab Samples

The remainder of the 2021 select grab samples results were also received from the North-North and Willow zones. The Willow zone is the northern most zone on the property located 800 metres due northeast of the Willoughby nunataq. Surface sampling returned high grade values ranging from 0.07 to 49.0 g/t Au, averaging 9.91 g/t Au and 3.3 to 777 g/t Ag, averaging 151.4 g/t Ag in a quartz-carbonate veins with massive pyrite-sphalerite within a Jurassic tuff breccia. This mineralization is analogue to that intersected in the 2021 drilling and is located 100 metres south of any drilling completed in the area.

The NN Zone is located at the northernmost end of the Willoughby nunataq, 150 metres north of the North zone. Surface reconnaissance outlined an extension of a wide mineralized north-northwest striking structure comparable to the North fault. These steeply dipping structures are linked to bonanza grade mineralization at the North zone to the south. A total of 11 grab samples were collected, ranging from 0.38 to 17.45 g/t Au, averaging 4.28 g/t Au, and 2.1 to 598.0 g/t Ag, averaging 159.1 g/t Ag. Highlights include 17.45 g/t Au and 576 g/t Ag in sample B0016021 and 13.60 g/t Au and 598 g/t Ag in sample B0016022.

Table 3: Willoughby property – North-North & Willow zones Exploration grab samples (NAD83 Zone9).

These encouraging results strengthen the mineralization continuity along the outlined 1,300 metres Willoughby mineralized trend and provide a cost-effective way to test and extend exploration targets on the property. Future work in 2022 is planned to follow up on the mineralization extension at both the Willow, Edge and the North-North zones.

Willoughby Project

The project occurs along the eastern margin of the Cambria Icefield, approximately seven kilometres east of the advanced-stage Red Mountain Deposit owned by Ascot Resources. Upper Triassic Stuhini rocks and Lower Jurassic Hazelton volcano-sedimentary rocks underlay the property, subsequently intruded by an early Jurassic-aged hornblende-feldspar porphyry, potentially comagmatic with the Goldslide Intrusive suite at the nearby Red Mountain deposit. Intrusive-related mineralized zones consist of primary pyrite with lesser pyrrhotite, sphalerite, galena, chalcopyrite and native gold. Eight gold and silver mineralized zones have been identified to date over a one-kilometre strike-length mineralized trend.

QA/QC

Using a hydraulic chisel, an approximate 2 by 2-centimetre channel was sampled continuously along 1 metre sample stations. If the hydraulic chisel was incapable of retrieving a chip from a specific location, a hand chisel was used to assist with the chipping within the limits of the 1 metre station. Chip data observation data were recorded and digitized in the field using MX Deposit, directly sampled into a polyurethane bag, and transported from the field to secure storage in Stewart.

Surface samples for the 2021 exploration program were labelled and shipped to the laboratory using industry standard chain of custody controls. In addition, the company implements a rigorous Quality Control/Quality Assurance program, including the insertion of Standards, Blanks, and Duplicates at regular intervals in the sample stream to monitor laboratory performance.

Samples were submitted to the ALS Laboratory facility located in North Vancouver, British Columbia, for preparation and analysis. The ALS facility is accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025 standard for gold assays, and all analytical methods include quality control materials at set frequencies with established data acceptance criteria. The entire sample is crushed, split into representative sub-samples using a riffle splitter, and subsequently, 250g is pulverized. Analysis for gold is by 30g fire assay fusion with atomic absorption (AAS) finish with a lower limit of 0.005 ppm and an upper limit of 10 ppm. Samples with gold assays greater than 10ppm are re-analyzed using a 30g fire assay fusion with a gravimetric finish. Analysis for silver is by 30g fire assay fusion with gravimetric finish with a lower limit of 2ppm and upper limit of 100ppm. Samples with silver assays higher than 100ppm are re-analyzed using a gravimetric silver concentrate method. All samples are also analyzed using a 33 multi-elemental geochemical package by 4-acid digestion (ICP-AES).

Dolly Varden Silver Intersects 1,532 g/t Silver over 1.22 Meters at Wolf Vein, 94 Meters Down Dip

VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Dolly Varden Silver Corporation (“Dolly Varden” or the “Company“) (TSXV: DV) (OTC: DOLLF), is pleased to announce drill results from regional exploration and reconnaissance drilling at its 100%-owned Dolly Varden Project located near tidewater in northwestern British Columbia, with particularly encouraging results from the Wolf Vein, as well as the identification of large, new porphyry related copper-gold system.

At the Wolf Deposit, drill hole DV21-273 tested the southwest projection of the Wolf Vein, 94m down plunge from the current Mineral Resources, intersecting 1,532 g/t Ag, 0.44 g/t Au, 2.11 % Pb and 1.07% Zn over 1.22m core length within a brecciated sulphide-rich quartz vein hosted within a broader pyrite stockwork breccia zone of 17.50m averaging 214 g/t Ag and 0.47% Pb. The current NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate hosts 3.83 million ounces of silver at 296 g/t in the Indicated category at Wolf. It is located approximately two kilometers northwest of the 25.0 million ounces of silver in the Indicated Category and additional 10.5 million ounces of silver in the Inferred category at Dolly Varden’s Torbrit Deposit.

In other regional exploration drilling, Dolly Varden’s technical team is highly encouraged by long intervals of stockwork quartz with strongly anomalous gold (>100 ppb) over wide intervals (up to 303 meters) along with silver and copper at the Western Gold Belt Area. Hosted within early Jurassic volcanic rocks, this style of stockwork and alteration is analogous to numerous alkalic gold-copper deposits and mines in British Columbia. The Company plans appropriate geophysical surveys for porphyry-style mineralization and subsequent follow-up drilling in this area.

“This high-grade silver intercept at Wolf demonstrates the excellent exploration and resource expansion potential on the Property. The next phase of exploration drilling will prioritize connecting our historic mines and current deposits of the Dolly Varden Trend with the deposits at Homestake 5.4km to the northwest along the Kitsault Valley Trend that comprise the recently announced proposed acquisition from Fury Gold Mines,” said Shawn Khunkhun, CEO of Dolly Varden Silver. “Additionally, the strong indicator of porphyry related gold-copper-silver style indicators potentially the most significant exploration breakthrough on the Property in years”.

A total of 10,506m in 31 diamond drill holes were completed at Dolly Varden during the 2021 field season. Results have been received for 10 holes that tested five regional exploration targets on the Property including the Wolf Vein extension and Western Gold-Copper Belt. Assays will be announced in the near future for the 21 holes completed at the high-grade Torbrit and Kitsol Silver Deposits. The 21 near-Resource holes were drilled as part of a two phase program with the objective of expanding Resources as well as upgrading current Inferred Resources to Measured and Indicated Classification.

The 2021 drilling at Dolly Varden initiated the Company’s two-year strategy to aggressively expand and upgrade the Torbrit Silver Deposit and multiple satellite zones with the objective of advancing Dolly Varden to be the next high-grade silver mine in British Columbia.

Hole DV21-273 is also significant as it tested the prospective Hazelton volcanic rock that underlies the sedimentary units of the Upper Hazelton for the Wolf Vein extension. Discovering that the strong potassic alteration associated with silver mineralization within the volcanogenic Torbrit Deposit continues beneath the sediment suggests that the mineralizing system continues to the west of the 4.5 km long surface alteration anomaly. This opens up exploration potential of the entire bottom of the Kitsault valley north of Wolf towards the Property boundary and onto Homestake Ridge.

“Intercepting silver mineralization associated with potassic alteration in the older volcanic rocks underneath the sediment package within the fold axis of a regional syncline gives our team further reason to drill test several geophysical anomalies identified along the northerly trend towards the deposits at Homestake Ridge”, explained Rob van Egmond, Chief Geologist for Dolly Varden Silver.

Wolf is the northernmost deposit that comprises the current Mineral Resources at the Dolly Varden Project. Modelling of the epithermal vein style deposit indicates a stepped vein system, offset by steep faults. The hanging wall of the deposit has strong barium signature and the veins contain barite and quartz. There are historic underground drifts at Wolf but no historic production was reported.

Western Gold-Copper Belt

On the Western side of the Kitsault Valley, three holes (DV21-267, 268 and 269) tested the Red Point target with structures related to a gold in soil anomaly within the southern end of the Western Gold belt quartz, sericite, pyrite (QSP) alteration zone. Drilling intercepted wide zones of stockwork veins with strongly anomalous gold, silver and copper mineralization within Hazelton volcanic rocks. Proximal to intrusive rocks, this wide zone mineralization is analogous to other alkalic copper-gold porphyry related systems in British Columbia. In the Golden Triangle, these deposits include KSM, Treaty Creek, Saddle (GT Gold), Red Chris and Snowfield.

This Western Gold Belt is located on the west side of the Kitsault valley and trends from near the Dolly Varden Mine northward for several kilometers towards Homestake Ridge. Intrusive-related QSP alteration is associated with zones of increased silica stockwork and multi-phased breccias with pyritic matrix. This style of alteration, mineralization and brecciation is also common at other higher grade deposits in the Golden Triangle, including Homestake Ridge and Ascot’s past-producing Premier and Big Missouri mines, as well as Goliath Resource’s recent discoveries west of Dolly Varden.

Medallion

Three holes were completed at the Medallion Prospect (DV21-264, 265 and 266) located at the southern end of the Project. Historic trenches and small adits explored narrow zones of veining within weakly altered volcanic rocks hosting silver, copper lead and zinc mineralization. No significant results were returned.

Syndicate

Diamond drill holes DV21-270 and 271 were drilled from the same setup as Medallion to test the Syndicate Target. A near-surface vein in DV21-270 returned 126 g/t Ag and 1.31 g/t Au over a core length of 1.10m.
